    Speed. Pure blinding speed. That's what Super Talent is dishing out with their "Super Talent RAIDDrive" USB 3.0 flash drive. Instead of crawling along at USB 2.0's pathetic excuse for speed, the RAIDDrive will effectively shuttle your 1's and 0's back and forth before you even know what's happening. According to Super Talent, the drive will run at a brisk 200MB/s (with a legacy driver). If using a newer, A UASP driver (USB Attached SCSI) driver, end users will be able to achieve up to 320...

    Everything these days is all about consolidating our gadgets into one ubergadget. While not always the best course of action, sometimes it can actually turn out pretty well. In the case of this 2-in-1 Flash drive and micro-USB phone charger, it at least appears that this iteration was pulled off relatively well. Having a flash drive and convenience of a phone charger built in is no doubt a saving grace to those on the go. Reinforcing that can be justified by the rise in popularity of smartph...

    If you're really feeling crafty this weekend, you may want to take in the wonderful display of geeky wonder that surrounds the Rubiks Cube Flash Drive. The process of making your own copy isn't very hard. It just takes a little bit of time. In this case, 3 days.

    [youtube][/youtube] Technology such as flash drives, how they work, and an overall amazement at how storage technologies work day in and day out go unnoticed by most. They simply expect their little flash drives to work when the moment arises not giving a care in the world to how exactly such things are made. While the general public won't care and again just want it to work, the geek in you craves for such knowledge and inside info. How exactly does...
  • Keep your data locked down with the Personal Safe Pocket Drive

    For most users who need light to medium security, a simple password protected folder will suffice. But for those who are in the market for some heavy duty security and want a good solid "physical" safety to fall back on will find just that in the Personal Safe Pocket Drive. The real draw here is 9-number keypad on the drive itself. I'm sure you can assume where this is going. In order to actually access anything on the drive, the correct keycode will need to be entered, after which all of ...

    There are big flash drives and then their are big flash drives. The Corsair Flash Voyager GT 128GB flash drive is the latter. Not only does this flash drive have a capacity that will hold more than enough for the general computing population, but it has a fat ass to match. I know what you're thinking. That a flash drive this large will take weeks to fill due to god awful read/write times. Fear not dear techie as the read/write times aren't too shabby (they're a whole lot better than my ol...

    Audiophiles and a few other geeky dablers are this day and age really the only individuals who would have or still be around vacuum tubes. Once a staple of electronics, they are now relegated to niche products and audiophile equipment among others. When geeks get bored, they improvise and create Frankenstein gadgets that at times truly wow us all. While this particular mash up doesn't necessarily "wow", it is helluva cool none the less. The creative folks over at CF14 Industries have taken...

    Flash drives are a dime a dozen these days with so many different shapes, sizes, colors, etc. It seems like everything is getting the USB innards rammed inside of them in order to squeeze out a few more pennies in sales in these trying economic times. While the more mainstream drives tend to be boring sticks of black and grey, novelty flash drives of cute little critters and last nights dinner have been popping up...everywhere. So just how useful and fast are these novelty things? Test Fre...
  • Looking for a 64GB Windows 7 compatibile flash drive?
    by Mike
    Posted July 2nd, 2009 at 9:41 am
    Flash storage has gained in storage capacity exponentially the last couple years. Now carrying 32, 64, and even 128GB in the palm of your hand can be had (for the right price of course). Those bleeding edge techies who are currently trudging along on Windows 7 beta's and RC's whom also need a high capacity flash drive that is compatibile with said OS now have an early friend in A-DATA. While major issues with current flash drives that aren't "officially supported" by Windows 7 are still wor...
